MM Distillery profile:
Glenkinchie is also known as 'The Edinburgh Malt' - which makes sense, given its location near the city in the East Lothian foothills. The distillery is located in the glen of the Kinchie Burn, not far from the village of Pencaitland. The name 'Kinchie' is probably derived from 'de Quincey', the name of the original owners of these lands. The current owners (Diageo) link Glenkinchie to the Milton distillery that was founded on the same location around .... More on Malt Madness.
